That's quite a unique frame. I wonder if those wires slits in the arms will create a weakness. I'm also a little concerned about the VTX being out in the open like that.

It was the last vtx I had around to test it... I was not patient enough to wait for the tramps Hv I ordered some days ago. I wanted to fly it :D But a tiny vtx like tramp or unify pro can enter in the frame.
After some crashes in ground and into trees, the frame is still in one piece, it's 4mm arms. Gotta test it more.

Yeah, that was basically my question: How do you think it'll hold up! But you seem to be doing some work on it and she's managing well :)

Every frame can break, but for the moment everything is fine, some videos are coming !

Very interesting design. What is the weight of the frame?

The frame is about 110g. It's not light but not so bad for a 6" 4mm frame. I'm working on a 5" race frame with the same design idea wich should weight arround 60g.

Currently on sale for $99, EV100 at Banggood The much anticipated Eachine EV100 headset has finally arrived! Opinions have been quite polarized and unless you've never flown FPV before you're likely to find fault in the field of view (FOV). I've tried a number of headsets and have to admit that I've been spoiled by the FatShark HD2 and HD3 goggles. That being said this is nowhere near that price bracket, so I'd like to compare the EV100 to a few headsets around the same price. Keep in mind that these cost $100 when they were released, so the current $159 price is likely to come down. EV100 vs the Competition I've been a long supporter of the Eachine EV800. It's a great headset for the price (~$55). Feature for feature it's the most comparable headset to the EV100. Both include a keep reading..
